Male Birthday Card for Papercraft Inspirations

Hi everyone, thanks to all of you who wanted to win the heart mini album, I used random.org and the winner is

thkelly (Therersa K)

Congrats! Email me with your address and I will get it in the mail (together with a few surprise bits and pieces) on monday




Here's a peek at a card from this month's edition of Papercraft Inspirations magazine, the Quick Cards section. I was asked to make a colourful card for a male birthday, with a cake theme. I quite liked this one, I cut varying lengths of bright paper, the candle flames are hand-drawn, and the arrow was cut from Going Places. Tiny making memories alphas (whatever will I do if they stop making these?) and the CAKE is spelt using American Crafts felt thickers





I am busy working on some samples for the TV launch of a new Polkadoodles CD on the 23rd February, I have just finished one card, and would so love to share it with you, but you will have to wait. Nikky comes up with the cutest ideas.

Have a lovely weekend everyone, I'll be back tomorrow to wish you a happy Valentines day
